Brain disease in Greek goats

Twelve Greek goats were found to be suffering from the brain-wasting
disease scrapie in the first half of 2004, EU figures made public
yesterday reveal.

The data, issued by the European Food Safety Authority (EFSA), show that
12 cases of transmissible spongiform encephalopathies (TSE) were
discovered in Greece, eight in Cyprus and 26 in France out of some
17,294 goats tested throughout the EU in 2004. The figures were made
public by Left Coalition Synaspismos MEP Dimitris Papadopoulos.

Some 100 Europeans have died from the human form of bovine spongiform
encephalopathy (BSE), or mad cow disease, a strain of the TSE group.
Meanwhile, tests are continuing in the case of a French goat slaughtered
in 2002, which experts think may have developed BSE. The EU bans the use
of milk and meat from herds affected by a TSE case.
